FISHING AT COLEHURST LAKE

A truly unique spot

 

Colehurst Lake has two spring-fed pools, Colehurst Lake itself and Maylea Pool, which were originally formed in 1990 and have been restored over the last three years to allow the re-establishment of a commercial fishery.

Stocked with Carp, Roach and Pike & Perch either water is a great place to come sit, unwind and do a spot of fishing

COLEHURST LAKE

Colehurst Lake is our biggest fishing pool with 16 pegs. Surrounded by woodland and fields it truly is a magical place to unwind and fish.

Camp fires are allowed on several pegs on this lake.

MAYLEA POOL

Maylea Pool is a small pool with a big heart.
Maylea Pool is actually deeper than the lake at around 9ft deep.  This pool has 10 pegs and she is teeming with some good-sized Carp, Roach and Perch.
